Black Forest velvet genetics are well known for their clean tidy style and heavy weight. This provides a premium in the market and exceptional results in Industry velvet competitions.
Our genetic performance is well documented on-farm and can be further measured by the outstanding results achieved in competition.
Velvet quality and quantity is the primary objective of our breeding programme.
The Black Forest velvet breeding program has focused on a clean attractive style that brings a premium in the market, our velvet Sires are cutting approx 10kg SA2 or more at maturity.
Black Forest stags have reaffirmed their position as top velvet producers winning the 2015 Open Red section at the National Velvet competition.
On-going investment in improving the genetic base and efficiency of your herd is an integral component in long-term commercial deer farming profitability. Velvet production improvement takes at least three years after the introduction of a new stag so the sooner you can introduce superior genetics into your herd the sooner you profit

Proven consistent performance from Black Forest Park & ex Black Forest entries through independent assessment of weight, grade & quality further confirms Black Forest Parks position as the leading breeder of consistent quality velvet genetics.
